My new 65g Paludarium
This is a work in progress and it was just recently planted, but here we go. This was a 65g saltwater setup that I essentially got for free. Spent the past few months slowly putting this viv together.

The only current inhabitants are the 9 Endlers in the water section. They are so tiny that that they figured out a way to get under my false bottom but they seem to be able to travel back and forth so I'm not that bothered. Future inhabitants will be 3-4 poison dart frogs, D. Leucomelas.

The only change from this photo is that the anubias nana are now mounted on a piece of wood that comes out of the water and rests on the land.

Thanks for looking!

Looks great. I am looking forward to more pictures. Can you post a list of the plants you have growing in there?

I can try. I looked some of these up myself and didn't get many results, so I'm thinking that the greenhouse I got the plants from did a lot of the cloning and naming themselves.

The aquatic section has:
glossostigma elatinoides
anubias nana

The rest:
Vriesea fosteriana v. seideliana
Tillandsia 'Chantilly' (stricta x leonamiana)
Vriesea espinosae
Hoya species ex. Patrick, Luzon
Aechmea 'Pagoda'
Selaginella brownii 'Lacy spikemoss'
Polystichum tsus-simense
Neoregelia 'Tuti Fruti'
Cryptanthus 'Rubin Star'
Neoregelia 'Tumbleweed' (liliputiana x Blushing Tiger)
Tillandsia aeranthos 'Major'
Neoregelia 'Gift of Love'
Neoregelia 'Ruby Lips'
Guzmania lingulata 'Teresa'
Neoregelia 'Angel Face'

Here's a better pic:

And here's my favorite brom, I mounted it too high for it to be easily visible from the front:

Thanks for the list. I am going to have to do a paludarium with broms next; I really like the look.

I would like to see a picture of the terrestrial growth in the front-right if possible sometime. I like the look of that area.

sweet palu!! i had the same issue with fish getting under the land mass of my 125 palu and tore it down. it had 6 tree frogs in it and didn't want to take the chance of something dying behind the scenes and polluting the water supply for my frogs. Leucs are gonna love that tank :)
